i think its despicable that someone is undermining the patriotic endogmation of our elementary school. I will never forget in 3rd grade when i learned that washington could have been a british general, if they had let him. God bless america!!!

If the first misconception isn't that he was born 181 years ago, the whole video is flawed.

I knew all of those and I'm American, @5cats.

another note:
Also there are some historical accounts of there being 4 to 6 Presidents who were black before George.

I knew 3 of those, and I'm a Canadian!

@Gerry1: There exists several sets of "wooden George Washington Teeth" because they were made as molds for the more elaborate ones he actually used. You're right, it's easier to sculpt wood than ivory, which is why a mold was made first. That's also why they've survived, they weren't used!
That's what I've read, anyhow.

He did have wooden dentures.
The teeth part were made of ivory & such
but the gums were whittled from wood to get
a custom fit.

chicagojay: When your roomie is watching an old movie and keeps turning up the volume while you try to watch the day's IAB vids, the lettering helps quite a bit. >grumble<

This trend of having the words appear as they are said, is dumb. Also, it is stupid. In conclusion, it is lame. Just show the damn sentence.
